Pick of the Day
The Story of Rugby, 10.45pm, RTÉ One
Can't stand the game myself, but I'd imagine lots of people will be eager to watch this new series tracing the history of rugby.
This six-part global documentary is about the key individuals and main events that have shaped the sport of rugby over the past 200 years, including how rugby's role in sustaining apartheid for 48 years in South Africa was also pivotal in ending it in 1995.
Episode one looks at the genesis of the game. A 16-year-old British schoolboy attending Rugby School, William Webb Ellis, is credited as the father of the game, whereas Thomas Arnold, the headmaster of Rugby School, was the man responsible for introducing a 'muscular Christianity’ into English culture and games such as rugby.

The Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, joins Bear Grylls on the latter’s survival series to talk about his relationship with nature and growing up in a poor family.
Following in the footsteps of former US President Barak Obama, who also guested on the show, he braved the rain and cold in the jungles of Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand, in northern India.
This isn't what you'd call a walk in the park.
